Sabbath Keeping

~ Gray Tom, thinking deep thoughts ~
"For as a man {or woman} thinks,
so he {she} is."

"We are addicted to our thoughts. We cannot change anything if we cannot change our thinking."  ~ Santosh Kalwar
"Judge a man by his questions rather than by his answers." ~ Voltaire ~
"The mind is not a vessel to be filled, but a fire to be kindles." ~ Plutarch ~
"Whether you think you can or think you can't, you're right." ~ Henry Ford ~
"Self-control is strength. 
Right thought is mastery.
Calmness is power."
"The trouble with having an open mind, of course, is that people will insist on coming along anda trying to put things in it." ~ Terry Pratchett ~
"A person is limited only by the thoughts that he chooses." ~ James Allen ~
"Five percent of the people think;
ten percent of the peple think they think;
and the other eighty-five percent would rather die than think."
"Poirot," I said. "I have been thinking."
"An admirable exercise my friend. Continue it."
"Whoever controls the media, controls the mind." ~ Jim Morrison ~
"The third-rate mind is only happy when it is thinking with the majority.
The second-rate mind is only happy when it is thinking with the minority.
The first-rate mind is only happy when it is thinking."
"Simple can be harder than complex: 
You have to work hard to get your thinking clean to make it simple. 
But it's worth it in the end because once you get there, 
you can move mountains."
"People don't like to think, if one thinks, one must reach conclusions.
Conclusions are not always pleasant."  ~ Helen Keller ~
"Readers are plentiful; thinkers are rare." ~ Harriet Martineau ~
"Thinking is the hardest work there is, which is probably the reason so few engage in it."
~ Henry Ford
"He who thinks little errs much..." ~ Leonardo da Vinci ~
"Life is a comedy to those who think, a tragedy to those who feel." ~ Jean Racine ~
"We can not solve our problems with the same level of thinking that created them."
~ Albert Einstein ~
"If you believe that your thoughts originate inside your brain,
do you also believe that television shows are made inside your television set?"
"What you keep before your eyes will affect you." ~ Joel Osteen
"If you make people think they're thinking, they'll love you;
But if you really make them think, they'll hate you."
"Tall, aren't you?" she said.
"I didn't mean to be."
Her eyes rounded. She was puzzled. She was thinking.
I could see, even on that short acquaintance, that thinking 
was always going to be a bother to her."  ~ Raymond Chandler, The Big Sleep ~

"Finally, brothers and sisters, keep your thoughts on 
whatever is right or deserves praise: 
things that are true, honorable, fair, pure, acceptable, or commendable. 
Practice what you've learned and received from me, 
what you heard and saw me do. 
Then the God who gives this peace will be with you."

If you'd like a name added to the prayer list, please let me know. Names are kept for one week; around the world, people are praying.

    I enjoyed this, Sandra.

    About 3 years ago, you and many of your followers prayed for my friend's nephew, Jay, who had brain surgery. He just celebrated his 18th birthday and is doing so well. Praise God!

  3. I love your Sabbath keeping, Sandra. It is a wonderful little blessing to all of blogland that find it here- xo Diana

  4. I hope that you and all of your pulled and sore muscles are feeling better.

    I think of you and your challenges on the farm each and every time the weather turns. I hope that your farm sells quickly and that God sends you off to do whatever he has in store.

    Have a wonderful week, be safe in the storm.

  5. This post of quotes gave me a few chuckles. The quote of Poirot by Agatha Christie and the Raymond Chandler quote. Stil laughing quietly to myself over those two.

  6. "Poirot," I said. "I have been thinking."
    "An admirable exercise my friend. Continue it."
    ~ Agatha Christie, Peril at End House ~

    I'm going to remember that one for the next time my husband says, "You know, I've been thinking..."

  7. enjoyed this so much!
